Imagine stumbling across a vintage record in your collection that could be worth tens of thousands of dollars. This dream scenario has become a reality for a keen record collector who has identified three vintage records potentially worth a small fortune.
Rush’s Debut Album 1974
First on the list is Rush's debut album from 1974, which was released under Mood Records in Canada. The value of this record lies in the rarity of its original release version. This hidden gem could fetch between ,500 and ,000, depending on the buyer.
David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs
Next up is the iconic David Bowie's Diamond Dogs, also released in 1974. This record is particularly valuable, especially if it is the original, unedited cover art version. It boasts an impressive potential value of up to ,000, often selling for somewhere in the range of ,000 to ,000.
The Beatles’ Yesterday and Today
Finally, we have The Beatles' Yesterday and Today album, released in the U.S. in 1966. This album is famed for its controversial cover art. Initially, the original album was withdrawn from sale due to the contentious cover, and later replaced with a pasted-over version. These peculiar circumstances make both versions of the album highly sought after by collectors.
The Beatles' record has been known to sell for a staggering ,000, although good-condition albums more commonly sell for between ,000 and ,000. An interesting tip for those in possession of the pasted-over version; resist the urge to peel off the replacement cover. Leaving it intact can boost the resale price by to ,000.
Finding a hidden treasure in your record collection is an exciting prospects. So, it might be worth dusting off those old records and seeing what you have hidden away.
